Florida Sen. Marco Rubio argued Friday that none of the Democratic plans for tougher gun control laws would have prevented the San Bernardino, Calif., shooting, and said Democrats are ignoring that terrorist have multiple weapons to choose from.
"When this first came out, without even knowing anything about the case, the first thing they started talking about was gun control, gun control. I don't hear anybody talking about bomb control," Rubio said on Fox News. "Within seconds, within minutes of this attack, you had multiple left-wing Democrats, whether they were senators or Hillary Clinton, out there talking about gun control as if somehow it would have done anything to prevent this attack."
Rubio argued that no proof exists to suggest gun control laws have reduced gun violence or would have in this latest mass shooting.
"Criminals will always have access to weapons, that's why it's important that law-abiding citizens have the ability to protect themselves," he said. "California for example has very strict gun laws. France has very strict gun laws. So the existing gun laws, even all the proposals that the Left are putting out if they were all in place, none of them would have disrupted not just the attack in San Bernardino but none of these other major attacks we've seen over the last few years in this country."Read more on WashingtonExaminer.com
